Maybe his playing was too showy overt the top for blues purists, but he sure was a lot of fun . http://www.guitarworld.com/former-ten-years-after-guitarist-alvin-lee-dead-68

Although, listen to his pre-Woodstock albums. For example "Stonedhenge". This is part psychedelic and part pure jazz. No guitar hero stuff. Alvin Lee himself complained in later interviews that post Woodstock his audiences drove him to do more "hard rock" and he wasn't happy about that. Even "A Space in Time" is pretty mellow and consider his work with Mylon Lefevre (Further Down the Road). Good stuff!

I have been meaning to investigate the earlier TYA albums . I only know the more Blues-Rock stuff . I have that Fillome East cd set that is really fun, especially if you like flamboyant guitar gunslinging : I recommend it !.It is funny how the Woodstock movie , and "Going Home" made them, but pigeonholed them .
Thanks ofr the tips .
